When a new Madden season starts, the way you win the most games is by not making mistakes.  The easiest way to avoid mistakes is to run the ball consistently with plays that you know will work.

The running play below is extremely effective and will give your opponents nightmares.

Playbook: Buffalo Bills

Formation: Pistol Ace Twins

Play: Strong Power

Setup:

  1. Flip the run to the left

Overview: This play works best with an above average running back and offensive line.  You don’t always need to flip the run to the left side of the field.  Sometimes the numbers work out better if you run to the right side.  It just depends on what the defense is doing.

Before the snap, you have to decide whether to run the play the way it is designed or whether you should flip the run to the left.  Here we decided to flip the run to the left.

Right after the snap, you can see how well your blocks are setting up.  You should have no trouble finding the hole.
